Georgia Faces Texas A&M on Saturday. Two Teams Trending in Opposite Directions

Josh Hancher

Mike White's first season started off with promise with ten wins before New Years then a 3-1 start with an upset win over Auburn and road wins at Ole Miss and Mississippi State.  Since, Georgia is 1-4 and had blowout losses at Tennessee and Auburn.  Texas A&M has gotten off to a 7-2 SEC start and is 10-1 at home.  The Aggies have attempted the 3rd fewest 3 pointers SEC, but still are among one of the more efficient offenses in college averaging 109 points per 100 possessions and Ken Pomeroy's adjusted for opponent has them at 114.  Georgia cannot afford any defensive lapses or easy baskets.  That said, the Bulldogs are 9th in SEC in defensive rating allowing 91 points per 100 possessions and are just 13th in Offensive Rating scoring 98 per 100 possessions. 

Key Players

  • Tyrece Radford    G    13.7 Pts, 5.4 Reb, 2.2 Ast    15.8 PPG in SEC and 46.7% FG
  • Wade Taylor    G    14.9 Pts, 2.9 Reb, 3.9 Ast    14.1 PPG in SEC  and  48.3% FG
  • Julius Marble    F    9.7 Pts, 4.2 Reb, 0.4 Ast    12.6 PPG in SEC and  54.4% FG

Georgia's starters only attempted 10 shots versus Auburn. The Tigers Defense held top 10 SEC scorer, Terry Roberts to 7 points and 3 TOs and Kario Oquendo had another tough night scoring 10 points on 2 of 8 shooting.  His season 3 point percentage has fallen below 30% and is just 2 of his last 17 from behind the arc.
